Doing a release

Doing a release of lemur requires a few steps.

Bumping the version number

The next step in doing a release is bumping the version number in the software.

  • Update the version number in lemur/
  • Set the release date in the Changelog.
  • Do a commit indicating this.
  • Send a pull request with this.
  • Wait for it to be merged.

Performing the release

The commit that merged the version number bump is now the official release commit for this release. You will need to have gpg installed and a gpg key in order to do a release. Once this has happened:

  • Run invoke release {version}.

The release should now be available on PyPI and a tag should be available in the repository.

Verifying the release

You should verify that pip install lemur works correctly:

>>> import lemur
>>> lemur.__version__

Verify that this is the version you just released.

Post-release tasks

  • Update the version number to the next major (e.g. 0.5.dev1) in lemur/ and
  • Add new Changelog entry with next version and note that it is under active development
  • Send a pull request with these items
  • Check for any outstanding code undergoing a deprecation cycle by looking in lemur.utils for DeprecatedIn** definitions. If any exist open a ticket to increment them for the next release.
